When a violation of the Academic Honesty Policy occurs, the instructor will inform the
student of a suspected violation by completing and delivering Form A (from Academic
Affairs Policy 101) to the student and obtaining the student’s signature on the form.
These are the possible courses of action for the student.
A.
The student proves to the instructor that there was no violation. In this event,
the instructor should destroy his or her copies of Form A.
B.
The student chooses to accept the instructor’s decision. In this case, the
instructor should keep his or her copy of Form A, signed by the student, and
assign the grade as described in Section 2 of Form A. A copy of Form A should
be delivered to the department chair.
C.
The student chooses to appeal the instructor’s decision.
1. The student must inform the instructor and department chair of this
decision by completing 2 copies of Form B (found at
/
governance/policies/New100/101.pdf), one each for the instructor and
the department chair. The student must deliver Form B to the department
chair and the instructor within five college instructional days of receiving
Form A. A “college instructional day” is a weekday on which classes meet or
final exams are scheduled.
2. The department chair will schedule a meeting with the instructor and the
student. The meeting will be within five college instructional days of the
date by which the department chair received Form B from the student.
3. The department chair will inform the student, the instructor, and the campus
academic dean of his or her decision, in writing, within five college
instructional days of the meeting.
4. The student may appeal the decision of the department chair. To do so, the
student must complete 3 copies of Form C (found at
/
governance/policies/New100/101.pdf), one each for the campus academic
dean, the department chair, and the instructor. The student must deliver
these forms to the dean within five college instructional days of receiving
the department chair’s decision.
5. The academic dean will schedule a meeting with the instructor and the
student. The meeting will be within five college instructional days of the
date by which the dean received Form C from the student.
6. The academic dean will inform the student of his or her decision in writing
within five college instructional days of the meeting. The decision of the
dean will be final.
This dean may choose to confer with a group of his/her peers while making this decision.
If this decision results in a second incident being recorded in the data base of the Vice
President for Academic Affairs, the academic dean’s notification to the student will include
a warning that future violations could result in expulsion from the college.
If this decision results in a third incident being recorded in the Vice President’s data base,
the Vice President will direct the Expulsion Panel to convene to decide if the student
should be expelled ( Academic Affairs Expulsion Policy 100).
NOTE:
If the appeals process has not been completed by the end of the term, the instructor
should assign the grade of NR until the matter is resolved.
